Depending on the area you want to operate on, there are several types of abdominoplasty or tummy tuck; We can mention the classic, the extended abdominoplasty, the mini abdominoplasty and the reverse.

Why should you wear a girdle?

Whatever type of tummy tuck you perform, it is essential to use post-operative abdominoplasty girdles , since these garments generate compression in the abdomen, avoiding inflammation, keeping the tissues in place and helping to heal the area better. intervened.

The use of girdles for abdominoplasty not only contributes to successful healing, it also prevents the appearance of bruises by ensuring that fluids are distributed correctly and circulation is adequate, since you must remain at rest for several weeks.
